I've been experimenting with the Dice Campaigns, to educate myself to be an online DM for a fantasy role play.

HOWEVER, I think I would rather do a modern day apocalypse role play, maybe something viral in nature or zombie-ish or "I Am Legend" Darkseeker-like.

I want there to be multiple Player Characters, because this is a dangerous world and PCs will die. (NO, I won't intentionally try to kill your PCs.

However, I want them all of these PCs to be written/played by the same player. This way, the two of us do not have to wait hours, days, sometimes weeks for the other players' to have all posted their turns.

If you are interested, here are more details:

  • I am female, so I will use "she", "her", and "hers" in the following explanation. However, the invitation is open to either a male or female writer, who hopefully will write both male and female PCs.
  • There can be descriptive detail and story telling, as with any role play, but the only things that MUST be in a reply are the PC's turns, meaning what she decides, says, does, etc. You know, typical Tabletop stuff.
  • The Player can post 1 reply covering all PCs or multiple replies covering individual PCs. What ever works at that moment is fine.
  • The Player will create a Dice Campaign to roll her own rolls and insert them into her reply when needed.
  • I will attempt to keep the story moving quickly by allowing PCs to make a succession of rolls to complete such things as a "melee" round or investigation of a room or trek through a dangerous area without having to wait for me to update the situation.
  • I am looking for a player who will post at least 10 times a week. That's not much, when you consider that a turn can include just actions and rolls -- no detailed description -- and can probably be completed in less than 5 minutes. Most of you spend more time than that each week waiting for your coffee to brew. In fact, you can play the game while you are waiting for your coffee to brew!


I will add more here today, but right now I have something to do elsewhere.

Potentially interested! What mechanics are you thinking of using?

I'm not going to use an existing game system but will instead make this up entirely off the top of my head.

I'm thinking that the underlying story can be similar to any one of my favorite movies or television shows: "I am Legend", "The Walking Dead", "The Book of Eli", "World War Z" (the movie; not familiar with the other formats), "The Postman", "Waterworld", etc.

PCs will start out with little and will need to accumulate resources while creating a secure living situation. They can remain in one place and venture farther out into their community; or they can be on the road, trying to get from Point A to Point B.

The trials and tribulations they face will depend upon the basic storyline with which we go.
